Life drawing, but not as you know it.
The idea behind Wild Life Drawing is simple (yet genius): instead of human models, animals ‘sit’ for us, while artist and wildlife enthusiast Jennie Webber instructs us on the ins and outs of drawing them.
Following the sell-out success of the most recent workshop, in which we welcomed a family of miniature pigs through the Carousel doors, we’re doing it again…this time with wolves. Yes, we’ll be meeting, drawing and learning everything there is to know about wolves, with the aid of behavioural expert and ‘head wolf’ Natalie Langstrom, who’ll be on hand to teach us about wolf-dogs and wild wolf conservation. Nervous? Don’t be. Our models are actually a family of British Lupine wolf dog hybrids, who look just like wild wolves, howl at the moon and live in a pack, but are as tame and friendly as your own pet pooches.
Workshops run from 11am to 1pm or 2pm to 4pm so, if you’re looking to make a day of it, we recommend combining it with a lazy lunch at the wine bar… now that’s what we’d call a perfect Sunday. Read the full menu and book in here.
The class is open to all abilities, from fully-fledged artist to absolute beginner. We’ll provide everything you need to draw – boards, paper and a colourful array of materials – but feel free to bring along any of your favourite drawing materials if you’d like to.
Wild Life Drawing is dedicated to animal welfare, only ever working with the finest animal handlers, who treat their animals with care and respect, and healthy animals that are happy being around humans.
10% of profits will be donated to Wolf Watch UK, an organisation which provides a safe haven for displaced wolves at their 100-acre woodland sanctuary in the Welsh countryside.
